Death of Mrs. Satterfield.

Passed Away Last Saturday After a Long Illness.

Mrs. Eva N. Satterfield, the wife of Mr. George Satterfield, died at her home in this city on last Saturday evening at 2:10 o’clock. Her illness was for two years and six months and was full of suffering and pain which she bore without murmuring and with rare resignation and fortitude.

Mrs. Satterfield was formerly Miss Eva Puckett, and was born at Allatoona November 20, 1842, and was reared and has always lived in this community.

She was a woman of ambition and rare energy and perseverance and much of her husband’s success is due to her co-operation, advice and help. She for years previous to her illness took an active hand in his business affairs. She was devoted to her family and was a good wife and mother, who will be sadly missed in the household.

Though her course was of that exemplary type that fitted her at any time for church membership, she refrained from seeking a church connection with the hope that some day she might carry her husband with her. Her power in this direction was exemplified the Sunday before she died when herself, her husband and son, Mr. Walter were made members of the Methodist church.

Mrs. Satterfield leaves a husband and three children, Messrs. Walter, William and John Satterfield.

The funeral took place from the home at 3:30 o’clock on Sunday evening, Rev. B. P. Allen officiating, Dr. W. H. Patterson, of the Baptist church, being also present and assisting.

The remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery.

Fred H. Stith having in proper form, applied to me for permanent letters of administration on the estate of Mrs. Eva Satterfield, late of said county, to be granted to Joe M. Moon, county administrator, of said county.  This is to cite all and singular the creditors and next of kin of Mrs. Eva Satterfield to be and appear at my office on the first Monday in August, 1899, and show cause, if any they can, why permanent administration should not be granted to Joe M. Moon on Mrs. Eva Satterfield’s estate.  Witness my hand and official signature.
